Are you sick of this set yet?

I know you're probably getting bored with Wild About You cards by now. But I'm still working at the challenge I gave myself to do 10 cards with this set. This is only #3, so I have a quite a few to go yet. I'll try to throw some other things in here and there, I promise!
I kind of struggled with this card, which seems silly now, because it's not a complicated card. It took me so long to find the "right" layout for the strips of paper and image, etc. In the end, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I sponged Chocolate Chip ink on the Tempting Turquoise cardstock to tone it down, and give it kind of a shabby look. I also distressed the Chocolate Chip cardstock around the main image to go along with that, and the strip of Ruby Red cardstock along the bottom was pierced with my paper piercer.
One last note... I saw how Beate was using this stamp from All in a Row to look like stitching, and I loved it! My attempt doesn't look nearly as good because I was having *issues* with lining it up, but I still like how it looks.

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Ruby Red (SU), Magnolia paper by My Mind's Eye
Ink: Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip (SU)
